Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, March 20, 1988 Pagel o Sports Richmond Ousts Hoosiers From NCAA HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Keith Smart, the hero of last season's NCAA championship game, watched his jump shot — and Indiana's chances to repeat — bounced off the rim with 20 seconds left Friday. "I hit one to win it all last year and I took one to lose it all this year," the senior guard said after Richmond's 72-69 upset over the Hoosiers in a first- round East Region game. Rodney Rice's jumper just inside the 3-point line 34 seconds before Smart missed the 12- footer put Richmond ahead. Rice, who scored 21 points, grabbed the rebound of Smart's shot and threw the ball downcourt to start a 3-on-l break that resulted in a layup by Ken Atkinson. Indiana's Joe Hillman missed one final desperation 3-pointer from the corner with two seconds left, ending Indiana's unlikely dream of two consecutive Richmond 72 Indiana ..69 championships. "I said before the game that we were evenly matched," Hoosiers' Coach Bobby Knight said. "I'm not surprised that we lost." It was the first time since 1981 that the defending national champion has been eliminated in its first tournament game the following year. The victory, Richmond's eighth straight, sends the Spiders into a second-round game Sunday against Georgia Tech, which defeated Iowa State, 90-78, in the first of four games at the Hartford Civic Center. Richmond has beaten Georgia Tech the two times they played in the past two regular seasons. Associated Press Richmond Spiders celebrate win over Indiana The loss stopped a six-game NCAA tournament winning streak for Indiana, which finished its season at 19-10. Rice, connecting mostly on perimeter shots, including three 3-pointers, led Richmond, the regular-season and tournament champions of the Colonial Athletic Association, to its victory. "This is tops," Rice said. "It was really sweet knocking off the defending national champs." Center Steve Kratzer scored 12 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, but more importantly took Dean Garrett, the Hoosiers' leading scorer and rebounder, completely out of the game. Peter Woolfolk added 16 points for the hot-shooting Spiders and Atkinson scored 14. Smart was the game's leading scorer with 23 points and freshman Jay Edwards added 16, including three straight 3- pointers, as Indiana tried to come back in the second half. Richmond took a 10-point lead with 13 minutes left before Indiana, on a basket by Smart and two straight 3-pointers by Edwards, came back to within two with 2:12 left. The Hoosiers went ahead for the first time in the second hall, 63-62, with 7:10 left on a jump shot by Smart, but the lead changed hands five more times before Richmond went ahead for good. Rice scored 15 points, includ ing nine on 3-point shots, to offset Smart's 17 as Richmond took a 44-38 halftime lead. Garrett was not a factor as the Spiders' collapsing defense denied him the ball and held him to one point and two rebounds in the first half. He finished with nine points and 10 rebounds. Richmond made 61.5 percent of its shots in the opening half.
